Making Our Own "Happily Ever After"
"To live happily is an inward power of the soul."
- Marcus Aurelius
Our lives are not perfect. We need to be mindful of the elements that are working, though, and then work on the rest, bit by bit. What makes you happy every day? Maybe you are thankful that you have a wonderful family, or great friends, or the best dog in the world, or a challenging job that offers interesting opportunities. On the other hand, what are the things you would change if you could? Do you wish you were more fit? Start going for a walk each morning or afternoon. Are you unhappy with your job? Think about what you love to do. and take a class or join a group that will help you get closer to doing what you want to do. Be thankful for the good things in your life, and make progress on the rest . That's all you have to do.
TODAY I WILL BE THANKFUL FOR AT LEAST ONE THING THAT MAKES ME HAPPY, AND I WILL MAKE PROGRESS TOWARD ACHIEVING A DREAM.
